Poll: 2016 Community Mock Draft (Pick No. 8)

The 2016 NBA Draft lottery was held recently and the Sixers finally landed the elusive No. 1 overall pick after missing out the past two seasons. Now that the exact draft order is locked in, teams can begin targeting specific players who are likely to still be on the board when it is their time to choose. Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. We at Hoops Rumors thought it would be fun to give our readers the chance to predict the results of this June’s draft, which is what we intend to do with a series of polls.

Nearing the lottery’s halfway point, we’ll continue on with the Kings, whose roster is relatively set for next season. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Sacramento’s pick and check back Saturday for the results, as well as to cast your vote for who the Raptors will select with the No. 9 overall pick. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the No. 8 overall pick and why you voted the way that you did.

    Marquee Chriss another big that they can pair with Demarcus cousins

    • They don’t really need another young big man with WCS on the roster. Dunn/Murray would probably be their choice but they’re both gone in this mock. Wing would probably be the next area that needs the most help. Valentine, Dejounte Murray, and Beasley are probably slight reaches at this point but would be a better fit than Chriss in my opinion.

      • DarkGhost

        If you’re looking for need then Chriss isn’t the best fit but he will be the best player available. The other players you named are reaches while Chriss is still on the board and as for WCS he will never be more than a Deandre Jordan type, great defensive anchor but very limited offensive game. Chriss has the potential to be a 20 Pts per game scorer.

    Sabonis. The Kings under divac and the new owner have made some weird picks, and I think Divac will get all nostalgic having played with his father and thinking they could go big with sabonis and cousins and using WCS off the bench.
